A&A SECONDARY BELT DRIVE SYSTEM FOR C5 AND C6 CORVETTE
The A&A Secondary Drive is unique in that it does NOT drive the accessories via the air conditioning belt. The Secondary Drive shaft pulley is driven by its own dedicated belt. This allows full belt wrap around the crankshaft pulley as well as the accessory shaft pulley and the ability to tension this belt separately. This eliminates accessory belt slip that plagues other systems. Our system utilizes a spring tensioner on the alternator / power steering belt which allows proper belt wrap and tension.
This system MUST be used with our proprietary balancer. A stock balancer or a standard 8 rib balancer from ATI or Innovators West will not work.
The kit comes complete with our proprietary SFI spec balancer (10% overdrive), all belts, hoses, pulleys, tensioners and brackets needed.
Using our Secondary Drive allows the use of a much shorter belt to drive the supercharger which eliminates stretch and belt whip. This is the ultimate belt drive system for street driven C5 and C6 Corvettes as well as dedicated race cars without air conditioning.

We want you to have the best experience possible when dealing with us both before and after the sale. You can always talk to a sales manager, the owner and head designer, or one of our techs who is infinitely knowledgeable on how the products operate and are installed. You won’t get a minimum wage customer service rep that knows nothing outside his or her script. You’ll get great advice based on many years of experience every time.
We’re happy to help you with your DIY install questions or product inquiries even after hours. The phones forward to either a Manager or Owner to help with both. Remembering that we are on Pacific time, you can generally get help until 9PM on weekdays and weekends alike. It’s something we started when the company was very young and have found it to be an invaluable resource to our customers.
